Ive just dicovered that mine is hidden which means its choc full of crud.Is there a way of unhiding just that and the temp internet and the history folders while re-hiding the others(ie the system folders etc) so they can be cleaned out by CCleaner?
I can do that recap but Im hoping to have just the temp folders permenantly shown but keeping the other stuff hidden if you know what I mean? Or is it safe to show them all and run CCleaner?Then hide them again.
You can safely remove anything in C:\Windows\Temp that was created before the current Windows session. So the best time to have it automatically emptied is during boot-up. Here's how to do that:
Select Start, Run, type the command "sysedit" and press Enter to launch the System Configuration Editor. Once there, go to the autoexec.bat window. That batch file may contain text, or it may be blank. Either way, add these two lines:
deltree /y c:\windows\temp md c:\windows\temp
Save the file and exit the program. From now on, you'll get an empty temp folder every time you boot.
